Dot NAME Domain Names

Introduced in 2001, the .NAME top-level domain name extension is the only one supposed to be for personal websites only. These domain names can include personal or fictional names, nicknames and/or other designations people are known by. Initially, just third-level registrations were allowed, so if you desired to book john.doe.name, you were required to do that under .doe.name. In 2004, however, the registration process was liberalized and second-level registrations were also permitted. Already acquired third-level domains remained online.

Through our firm, you can register your dot NAME domain for an interval between 1 and 10 years. You will have the chance to update the WHOIS details, to park your domain, to set up Custom DNS records, etc. You can also move over an already registered domain to our company if you take its EPP transfer code from the current domain provider and we will renew it after the transfer has been finalized. There are no specific rules on who can acquire a dot NAME domain, but in order to preserve the goal behind its establishment alive, the .NAME Registry may check who the Registrant is and if there is no relation between the owner and the actual domain, the registration could be challenged.

The dot NAME extension is amongst the extensions that support internationalized domains, so we can also register a domain in any language at no further cost. In this way, your .NAME domain will be recognized in your country or area with the accurate spelling in your local language.
